Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
Physical violence is not the answer as a punishment for a 15 year old. Has your daughter tried counseling for her son? Has she considered a boarding school or a bootcamp type school? His behavior will probably only worsen unless extreme measures are taken immediately. Sending him to you is not the answer especially since your husband approves of using physical violence as well.
